Symposium Link


The Undergraduate Computer Science Research Symposium (UCORE) offers undergraduate students at McGill University who have been involved in summer research the opportunity to submit and present their research. This allows students to learn about the breadth of computer science research and share their accomplishments with a wider audience.

UCORE adopted a new format in 2019 which we will continue to follow this year, albeit online: a poster session featuring undergraduate research in the department around the time of the first SOCS colloquium. Researchers will display posters in a casual open setting using a Gather Town framework. They should prepare a short walk-through talk about the research and be ready to discuss with their peers, the rest of the department, and a program committee. The program committee will evaluate each poster presentation based on the visual quality and the verbal pitch and provide feedback to the student authors on their presentation.

We ask interested students to submit an abstract and title by August 31, 2021; received abstracts will be provided with feedback. This follows the model of the ACM student research competition and many other workshops in computer science.

Important Dates:

Submission details:

Each submission should include the student author's (authors') name(s), institutional affiliation, e-mail address, and research advisor's name in addition to the title and an extended abstract addressing the following:

Submitted abstracts should be in PDF, formatted using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines. The abstract should not exceed 600 words (excluding references).

Submit on EasyChair.
